April 2017, Vol. 3, Issue 11
The other morning, I woke up from a dead sleep and clearly heard: "Don't wait. Live now." Then, I started to see all of the times that I just waited... waited for people to change, waited for circumstances to change, waited for my life and feelings to change. In this waiting, I really missed out on living in the present moment. I was stuck in the past and or future. The correlation dawned on me: for the last few years, I've felt so stuck - the reason being that I was waiting. I was unsure of the steps to take and instead of trying some out, I waited. I was clinging to my expectations, waiting for them to be fulfilled. When you wait, you're at a standstill; when you're at a standstill - you're stuck. The present is where the power is. Live in the Now. Be present in the Now. Take steps in the Now. Is there some aspect of your life where you find yourself waiting?
Love, Adrienne :)
Whichever faith you celebrate, wishing you and yours a Happy Easter & Happy Passover.
Earth Day is April 22nd. Of course, every day should be Earth Day. The Earth is not just some rock out in space. It has an Essence, a Spirit. It's a beautiful planet full of amazing life. It's our home - and we're destroying it. We can no longer remain unconscious and oblivious. Everyone can do something to contribute to a better future. Earthday.org is a great site to check out for some ideas on how to be better caretakers of our communal home.
A quote to ponder:
"Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs, but not every man's greed." - Mahatma Gandhi
I know I shared a Prince Ea video last month, but I really like what he has to say in this video to future generations. It's in our hands to do something so we don't have to tell our children's children, "sorry."
For a chuckle:
A cool share:
A little perspective... from Google Headquarters to 10 billion Light-years away to 1 Femtometer.
Art from the Soul:
Japanese artist Yusuke Asai creates stunning works of art from dirt. Why dirt? "I choose to use the earth as a medium because I can find dirt anywhere in the world and do not need special materials. Dirt is by nature very different than materials sold in art stores! Seeds grow in it and it is home to many insects and microorganisms. It is a “living” medium." His art is temporary and he's o.k. with that: "I accepted the ephemeral nature of dirt as a medium from the moment I started painting with it. Once dry, paint cannot be wiped away, but with the addition of water dirt can be removed from a surface. I have been doing this type of earth painting since 2008 and most of these works have already disappeared! There is a desire for artwork to be permanent, but to try and keep it forever would mean that my painting would become unnatural. When I erase the painting it is sad, but within the context of the natural world, everything is temporary." Source: ricegallery.org
